In 1992, President Gordon B. Hinckley announced that a second temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in England would be constructed.
Information on www.ldschurchtemples.com says: "Located in Western England, north of Liverpool and Manchester, the Preston England Temple anchors an extensive church complex that includes a stake center, missionary training center, family history center, distribution center, patron housing facility and temple missionary accommodations. Decorating the manicured grounds are mature trees, flower gardens and a pair of reflection pools near the entrance."
Because of the initial success of the LDS Church in England and its beginnings in Preston, this temple is called the Preston England Temple, even though it is physically situated in Chorley, Lancashire, about eight miles away. The temple was dedicated June 7-10, 1998, by President Hinckley. There were 15 dedicatory sessions.
